Stop Obesity

Compared to a "regular" meat patty, this version has one-third the fat, half the carbohydrates and considerably more fibre.

This is due to the use of lean meat mixed with cabbage for a lighter result and oat flakes to thicken and add fibre.

Did you know that most fried dishes can be roasted in the oven, which generally reduces the amount of fat by half?

Did you know that oat flakes can be used to thicken sauces and soups, and to make burgers as shown in this recipe?
